    Some sites are just designed to go to mobile if accessed from a phone. Not all sites will do that

    From what I can see no. I used to use Firefox browser and just downloaded this add-on that made all sites go to desktop. Idk if you want to try that out or not but that's just my $0.02 worth.

    I also had that problem with dolphin so I switched back to my trusty Boat Browser. Even though I had dolphin set at desktop mode, sites would still only open as mobile but they always open in desktop on Boat Browser.

    Sorry for what weasel? Your input is very valuable and just as valuable . Made me want to check out the add-on. That's what I love about Android... more than one way to do the same thing! Yee ha, go Android! And Go Weasel! Lol!

    Hana thanks. It just upsets me when someone has a problem on there phone. They come to this forum, and then I can't help, or anybody for that matter.
